Unequally yoked music standards.
|Add a little more detail (optional):||Should I so 'no' to a great, godly young man in order to hold to my conservative God honoring music standards? By this I mean I was raised on Patch the Pirate, sacred hymns and classical music. I personally could live, love and raise a family with music like this for a life time. I'm not a novice in music. Should I let go of my traditionally right kind of music only standard and be open to his music too? Mainly love songs nothing with raunchy words or rap... I'm torn. I'm concerned (scared is a more accurate word) that if I say 'no' to a fantastic young man I'll still find myself changing in the future anyway. I could easily listen to good music all by myself but is it an area I expect someone to jump in the trenches with me about? Is music an area that I actually want to fight for by only accepting a guy with high standards in it? And then...what if HE changes? Will I kick myself hard for not just "getting over" it way before when I was young, dumb and in love?
Also. Has ANYONE ever had an issue with this in their marriage? I feel like there is so much give and take. He has so many things that are must haves and doesn't have things I can't have. But I think about it and there are so many good guys with a big mark against them like coming from a broken home. Is this his big mark that I should not expect to get any better? I couldn't do any better than him...unless...in my heart of hearts....HE listened to great music.
